Stamp collectors! Attention on deck!

The Meridian Star of Meridian, Mississippi, says, "If you can pass this little test, you might have what it takes to be a Naval aviator."

"Take a postage stamp, glue side up, and place it in the center of your living room. Back up several steps. Now take a good running start and dive toward the stamp, tongue out and ready to lick it."

"If you can successfully lick the stamp, without having to dig carpet fibers out of your teeth, then you might have what it takes to land a jet on an aircraft carrier in calm seas."

[EDITOR'S NOTE: You might want to use the 1961, 50th Anniversary of Naval Aviation stamp, shown above, to practice with.]
